Yokomo Shock Absorber Servicing

It was almost a year i did not use all 4 shocks. Front were fixed with TN racing "L" and rear still maintaining shock system with seesaw linkage.  I like it, thanks to people like Bagi and Riku and many brave people who try everything. 
I don't want to say much, most every rc drifter knows this. Just sharing what is important to me when servicing or tuning my shocks. Here are some of thr tools i use. 

It is recommended to use Green Slime with new sets of O'rings. I still have thr blue Yokomo rings, thr best still kyosho's x grooved o'rings. 

I use cotton buds if the shock is too dirty. 

I use 500-200 range as it is easier to vacuum. 

Not many people use Yokomo Aeration Caps like me. I like so much. Easier to set rebounds and even zero rebound. 
To have more rebounds extend the shock and tightened the small bleed screw. 

To do almost zero rebound, i use camber adjuster to give a small gap, compress the shock and hold it. Tighten thr bleed screw and finish. 

After extending the shocks it will give you as what we want. So what do i want? What do you want? :)

Sometimes, i select my springs, shock positions for hours at home. What i want is hitting the track and drift! - I like to have more drift time than sitting at table setting the car. The longer you tune your car, everything we do, we always know exactly it will behave 😄
